In my romantic mind I think I could happily live on this boat. It is one of many we saw this Summer.
Having spent a week holidaying on a barge I know that it is hard work ~ locks, clearing debris from the engine parts etc.
But the ability to untie the ropes and quietly move on is very appealing.
I love canals and canal boats. I feel relaxed as I walk along listening to the gentle chug of a passing barge.
